Bhima had three sons from his three wives – Ghatotkach from Hidimbi, Sutasoma from Draupadi, and Sarvaang from Balandhara


The Naga Ulupi, the princess Chitrangada of Manipur, Krishna’s sister Subhadra during this pilgrimage.

But in Tamil retellings of the Mahabharata, he married totally seven women.

One of them was a warrior woman called Ali who refused to marry him but Arjuna was so besotted that he sought Krishna’s help. Krishna turned him into a snake and he slipped into Ali’s bed at night and frightened her to become his wife.

Some say he forced her to be his wife as he managed to spend the night in bed with her in the form of a snake.

He also married Chitrangi, a Pandya Princess(Tamil Literature).

His sons,

Abhimanyu(Subhadra),Babruvahana(Chitrangada), Srutakirti (Draupadi)and Iravan(Ulupi)


Karenumati, the princess of Chedi.

Son Niramitra.


Vijaya,daughter of Dyuthimatha, King of Mathura.

  1. It is strange that Bhima married Sisupala’s sister, since Sisupala was a cousin of Krishna and the Pandavas. His mother and Kunti were sisters and Vasudeva was their brother. So that makes Sisupala a cousin-brother of Pandavas and this means Bhima married his cousin-sister! Even more complicated is that Nakula married the princess of Chedi, which I am presuming is daughter of Sisupala. Therefore, Bhima became an uncle of Nakula?!?!
